    Well do you see the drive under the devices with removable storage heading in mycomputer? It might be your ide (or whatever interface you use) or 4 pin connector fell out.

    In the future if the drive is stuck (you may already know this), but you can manually eject discs with a paper clip via a small hole on the front of the drive. Just straighten out the clip and ram it in there.

    Hi aiedorashleah,
    Just like gorky said

    .
    If you need step by step instructions (with pictures) on how to do this.. checkout the "CD/DVD drive Troubleshooting" page in the Beginners section at my website.
    Hope this helps,
